And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself. Luke 24:27
For a very long time my relationship with the Bible was through the eyes of someone else, what they preached, how they understood it and their interpretation of the Bible. I listened to alot of preachers at the time but it wasn’t like I followed them hook, line and sinker but I definitely was swayed by whatever wind of doctrine my favourite speaker at the time was preaching to me but for some reason somethings just never sat well with me. One of which was seeing the Bible as a book of promises where I can just get something to use for myself and get what I wanted but I had no understanding at the time.
My journey with reading God’s word with Jesus in focus stared 2 years ago, I was encouraged to read the Bible for myself but this time with the right lens. Jesus Christ. I am now more than convinced that the Bible isn’t just where I fish for God’s promises for me so I can apply to my life but for me to learn about Christ, live out his life and point others to him.
“You search the Scriptures because you think they give you eternal life. But the Scriptures point to me! John 5:39
